$43,800,000 Environmental Jury Verdict

by: Prince, Glover & Hayes Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

On October 3, 2001, a Hale County jury ordered Plantation Pipeline to pay our client, his son and a family trust $43,800,000 including $37,000,000 in punitive damages. The plaintiffs sued Plantation Pipeline and Chevron after our client dug an irrigation well on his small farm and struck gasoline.  At trial, it was proven that Plantation Pipeline was responsible for 750,000 to 1,000,000 gallons of gasoline that leaked from their pipeline and migrated onto the plaintiffs’ property.
